I want to limit the number of entries a user can create. I've found a similar question here: Restrict number of entries per user
The reason that answer won't work for us is because our version of EE is 2.1.3 - before safecracker was integrated. We've tried updating it to the latest version, but after three weeks encountering error after error after error we've had to roll back before we miss a deadline which could make or break our business.
Is there anyway to do this without Safecracker?
